Kindergarten Teachers

Kaylee Davis 

I was born and raised in Mount Pleasant, where I attended Mount Pleasant schools K-12. I graduated high school in 2016. I then attended Martin Methodist College where I received my Bachelors in Elementary Education in 2020. I have always wanted to be a teacher and I am so glad to be able to do what I love every day! 

I have an amazing fiancé and we are getting married in April 2021. We have a toy poodle named Millie. I am the assistant softball coach at MPHS. I also love doing photography and playing sports in my free time. 

I love making memorable learning experiences for my students. I believe that learning is meant to be “hands on” and enjoyable. My goal is to make every one of my students feel loved in my classroom. I am so thankful to be apart of such an amazing school!

I am a Maury County Public School graduate from Santa Fe. I attended Columbia State Community College and graduated with a Bachelors in Education from MTSU. Since I was a little girl I knew I wanted to grow up to be a teacher! I have been a teacher and taught at MPES since 2011. I have 2 little girls, Caroline and Sydney. I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling and going to the river.

I have a “hands-on” classroom where I try to make learning fun every day! I love to see my students explore and learn new things. I am excited to get this new school year started and I want to thank you for sharing your precious kindergartener with me!


Beth Ring

I grew up in Santa Fe and attended Santa Fe Unit School K-12.  My dream of becoming a teacher began in Kindergarten, so after graduation, I attended Martin Methodist College in Pulaski, TN where I earned my BS degree in Early Childhood Education.  I began my teaching career at MPES in 2003 and have loved every minute!  Each day I get to come to work and help children grow as learners and readers.

I live in Columbia with my husband, Brian, and we have 3 children, Austin, Kaylee, and Adam. We love spending time together and even have a family YouTube channel. When I actually have time to myself, I enjoy reading and watching Hallmark movies. I'm excited to begin another wonderful school year at Mt. Pleasant Elementary, where students come first!

I grew up in Dothan, AL and attended Troy University where I earned my BS degree in Early Childhood Education.  I began teaching in 2005 and have loved every minute of it!  I am thankful to be a part of the Mt. Pleasant community.  

I live in Hampshire with my husband, Ben, and our son, Trey.  We have a dog named Emmit, a cat named Belle, and chickens!  I love living in the country and being outside, especially by the pool or at the beach! I enjoy reading, crafting, and spending time with my family and friends. 

My classroom is always a fun, active, and loving environment.  I absolutely love teaching and seeing my students grow and learn throughout the year.  I am looking forward to a wonderful year at Mt. Pleasant Elementary!

I am a proud Maury County Public School graduate! I graduated with a degree in education from Middle Tennessee State University and later earned my master’s degree in library science. I began teaching in 2012 and am excited to now be a part of the Mt. Pleasant community! 

I live in the country with my husband, our dog Lily, and our three goats. I love spending time outdoors, especially on the water at the Tennessee River. I also enjoy reading and spending time with my friends and family. 

I am so thankful to be a part of the Mt. Pleasant Kindergarten team! I know we are going to have a wonderful year!
